La Convenția electorală a PVE din 22 Februarie 2014 delegații partidelor membre prezenți au adoptat cu unanimitate Manifestul.
Stimate cetățean european,
Dorim să vă invităm să participați la alegerile pentru Parlamentul European ce vor avea loc în perioada 22-25 mai 2014.
Today Members of the Romanian Chamber of Deputies chose not to support a proposed amendment to the country's mining law that would have enabled big companies to evict local residents from their home in areas that they want to mine, should ‘national interest’ require such measures. The Parliamentary session saw the National Liberal Party walk out of the vote. As such the amendment, which only appeared on the Parliamentary agenda this morning, didn’t receive the required majority. The European Greens and Romanian Greens have welcomed the result.
The European Green Party (EGP) strongly supports the small community of Pungesti, Romania – a village under siege after a violent intervention of Riot Police Forces allegedly at the request of Chevron. The energy giant plans to explore for shale gas in the region endangering the health and livelihood of the local population. EGP Co-Chair Reinhard Bütikofer calls on the Romanian government to ensure that all violence is stopped and to listen to polls clearly stating that that Romanians don’t want their national resources exploited and destroyed for economic gain.
Protests have grown all over Europe, but especially in both Bucharest and Budapest over the Rosia Montana gold mine, with both the Partidul Verde, the Romanian Green party and their colleagues in LMP, the Hungarian Green party, adding their voices.
15 Young Greens selected from all over the country have met with a delegation from the Green Party of England and Wales (GPEW). The workshop was held to help build stronger links between the two groups, and to help build up the Moldovan Young Greens.
After parliamentary elections in Romania on Sunday December 9, Ovidiu Iane, president of EGP member party Partidul Verde, and Remus Cernea, president of Mişcarea Verzilor-Democrati Agrarieni (MVDA), have both won seats in the Romanian national parliament.
Romania still seems caught between communism and capitalism. The era of Ceausescu has a presence that never seems to leave a conversation. Certainly it is hard to ignore him. The city has the monolith of the Ceausescu palace, now the parliament building. We were driving to it and turned the corner and it swept into view. More accurately, it blocked a view of anything else. This building is the biggest in Europe. In the world, it is only surpassed by the pentagon, in the USA. This was one of those moments when you wonder what happened to the sun.
When I asked him what got him interested in the Green movement, he paused to think about that and found it a curious question. For him, there was no specific event like my French travel mate Jocelyne Le Boulicaut.
